Want A Scale Custom Painted Body? A Complete Custom? Come In Here!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys been a little while since I posted here on a daily basis but I appreciate all the help that was given to me. I began with 2 Tamiya 4wd buggies about 6 months ago after leaving the hobby for 18+ years and now have 13 runners electric and nitro. I'll get another Tamiya again, but right now I'm back into this hobby more then I ever have been. So, I have met a local painter who is working on my Slash body right now (he did my Revo) and he is right up your alley. He specializes in realistic scale painting and is an absolute R/C enthusiast, not just some guy who had nothing better to do with his time. All his bodies are done with 100% paint, and no stickers. I was speaking to him over the past couple of days and convinced him to offer a group buy for you guys.

Here is the deal:

10-15 people =$40.00 USD for a realistic painted shell with scale details and trim.(+ body if you dont have one + shipping)

10-15 people =$45.00 USD for race numbers or logos if you want a race car scheme vintage or modern(same as above)

If you want more work then that please contact me for pricing. All logos are painted unless you specify that you rather have stickers. He does lexan, resin, and "abs".

15+.well lets start with the first 15 and go from there. Here are some pictures just to sample his work.

Please PM me or email me @ Art4mdesign@aol.com. I DO -not- have any financial tie to this at all. Once set up you pay CHRIS the painter, not me. His normal prices begin at $60.00+.

Lets begin here and see where it takes us. Maybe Terry SC will get one done up nice or Twin set. I hope this is enough for the great help I have recieved here on TC. Thanks guys.

Flippin eck! he's good! that paintwork looks fantastic.

I feel this is a good deal for anyone who isn't skilled with paint and wants a Beauty shelfer, nice touch.

Yeah he is very good, I am VERY picky about how my things look. Thats why I stopped painting myself lol. When he first did my Revo body I paid $100.00 including the body, so figure $70.00 for the paint work. This is a fantastic deal and if we get enough people I'm going to do another Slash body in the vintage GT-40 egg shell blue/ orange gulf theme. I can post a few more pictures if people need some more motivation :rolleyes:

Any examples of "ABS" paint jobs ? I'm picky as well and those bodies are tricky to get smooth & shiny.

I'll try to get one for you. He also paints 1:1 cars so he is used to any surface really. I am 99% sure that I am going to have him (Chris) paint ghost flames on my 1:1 Corvette. I just need to figure out 100% if I want paintwork at all on my car, not the choice of painter. He also paints mini-Z bodies which are really hard because they are so tiny.

I just took another look at the pictures I posted and take a look at the white Camaro with rally stripes. Notice the flat black roof that is meant to mimmic a Vinyl top? That was painted on the outside. He would shoot a couple coats of clear to keep the detail and to give a protective finish. The ONLY thing he does not do on a usual basis is rust, or faux body imperfections for the scale crawler guys. I'd say because I know he does not do that often, you might want to do that stuff yourself. I will only suggest things I know 100% for sure because it is my reputation at stake here.

D@mn, that White Camaro is an ACE :) .. Does he do buggy bodies (501X or DF03) with a multi colored look?

I'm looking to hire an expert to paint my NIB Vintage Original Mountaineer to show quality standards ! But I'm very hesitant to just ship that baby off !?

This is tempting - I've got a few bodies in the line that will need painting up nicely, and I'm not very good at painting - and also seem to have lost touch with my uk-based decal producer!

Unfortunately my RC budget has already been spent for this part of the year so I'm going to hold back right now.

Rob whats up bro? Yeah, he can do anything you want, but realistic is his cup of tea. If you want a crazy paint job for your buggy, I have another guy that is priced right and will make your lid look great. I spent alot of time geting to know painters over the past few months, so PM me with what you think you want and I'll try to match you to the painter who I know will do it right. Every painter has his/her own style. Also, PLEASE do not buy anything from "RCBODZ." He used to be a great painter who did covers for magazines and now is the biggest R/C scammer around. He sells on ebay so thats why I'm putting this out there.

Guys dont be shy... PM me if you have any questions. You can also call me @ 646 401 2683 if you arent as computer savy at trying to explain what you want.

Hey, you never know. His prices are in USD, so if the pound/euro are still doing well then you actually end up paying a bit less then we Yanks do <_< PM me if something comes up and you have the financial room. If not now, anytime.
